Loro Piana is a luxury Italian textile company that was founded in 1924 by Pietro Loro Piana. The company originally started out as a trader of wool fabrics, but over time it became a manufacturer of fine woolen textiles.
In the 1970s, Loro Piana began working with vicuña wool, which is one of the rarest and most luxurious fibers in the world. They were one of the first companies to secure a license to buy and process vicuña wool, which is native to the Andes Mountains in South America. Loro Piana's use of vicuña wool helped to elevate the company's reputation for producing some of the finest and most luxurious fabrics in the world.
Today, Loro Piana sources fibers from all over the world and produces a wide range of textiles, including wool, cashmere, silk, and cotton. They are known for their commitment to quality and sustainability, and they have developed innovative techniques for processing and treating their fabrics to enhance their natural properties. Loro Piana fabrics are used by some of the world's top fashion houses and are a symbol of luxury and sophistication.
